    Going to get this thread up a little in advance, since I will be a little busy with the holidays.
    I am upping the slots to 15... but I am trying something a little different...
    Not all maps are alike. some are small, compact, alpha maps, some are larger, heavily detailed maps.
    Tiny maps tend to not really need a full half hour block to find the problems and have fun on them, where as half of a block of Aerospace tends to be just downloading it :p. So, Ill be making differently sized slots. We will now have:
    (14) 20 minute,slots
    (same 14 as the 20 minute) 30 minute slots
    (3) 40 minute slots

    the 40 minute slots are reserved for late beta/release canidates that really need fine tuning.
    the 30 minute slots are intended for late alpha/early beta maps, but may be used by anyone
    the 20 minute slots are optional for people who have smaller maps, or maps that are early alpha so that the mapper can get a feel for the flow, and get quick suggestions.

    *Please let me know how you feel about these changes. *

    Event will begin at:

    Central European: 8:00PM
    UK: 7:00PM
    Eastern: 2:00PM
    Central: 1:00PM
    Mountain: 12:00PM
    Western: 11:00AM

    Event will take place at:

    Well, the thing is, I won't be awake at 6pm EST as that is past midnight here in the UK.

    By all means, feel free to put it on for tomorrow but would it be possible to also run this on January 3rd where I would be able to play it? :p

    I always set the UK crowd to the early slots, but even then the 4th slot is the best I can offer.

    The idea sounds awesome, having time to go over more maps is a major plus.

    Slotsize: 40 would be nice, but as I'm rather far along in terms of playtesting and just want a chance to play it with other tf2mappers, I'd take a smaller slot size. It 'is' rather far along though.

    20/30 slot, depending on what you have open (its only half of the map, 2 points)
    Discussion: http://forums.tf2maps.net/showthread.php?t=3806



    Also, if for some reason a gameday ends up happening before the 3rd (ie, the 27th or the 28th), could you (or who ever is running it) enter this same map for that gameday as well? I most likely will not be able to access the internet prior to the 31st, so....yeah.

    Ouch, I'm hoping to get cp_vulture out in time for this event, but it seems like there are pretty few slots let already. Could you post the thread a bit later for upcoming Gamedays?
